“The author writes from the perspective of a ‘ninja enthusiast’ and forces the western ninjutsu dojo culture to engage in some serious self-reflection. This is a quick read, coming in just under 100 pages, but it draws from many lengthy sources which are listed in the back. This list of sources alone is worth the price of the book. I’d recommend this book to anyone interested in studying the history of ninjutsu and/or it’s impact on modern martial and self-defense culture. The author extends the tactics, principles, and philosophy of ninjutsu from its historical context into modern society.”
